things that dampen economic growth and the u.k. is finding this out now, they adopted this big austerity budget, and there's a good chance that economic activity will go down so much that tack revenues will be reduced even more than spending is cut, and their deficit will increase. so why are we talking more about the economy and less about this? partly because the republicans who control the house and have a lot of votes in the senate have now decided having quadrupled the debt in the 12 years before i took office and doubled it after i left that it's all of a sudden the biggest problem in the world. [laughter] i'll come back to that. but i want you to think about it. because i hate these deficits. and i was appalled that the debt was doubled in the eight years after i left office. and i think the fiscal condition of the country did make us weaker in dealing with the financial crash. i'll say more about that in a minute. but you have to know about what works. there's almost no discussion in this debate. i read the articles every day about the timing of whatever it is they do and whether

was having a difficult time but they're getting killed by the big warehouses that are selling to the folks who like to buy car parts, and, but this isn't just a main street versus internet, because all these internet companies are on main street somewhere. and what happens when we get to the point where everybody is internet? aren't we all just main street? , and aren't we then in the same exact position as we are today where the inter internet, main street retailer in downtown sioux falls, south dakota is competing 3 the internet main street retailer in ogden, utah without the price differential, butting heads against each other trying to steal each other's local customers. # wanted to fix this problem given that there would not be any mainstream stores. i was taken aback because i could not figure a response. i could always think their response. it made me think. what have you tried? what if there is not mean streak in the sense that we think of it today? you can go online to the store around the corner by something dumb and have it shipped to you. i am shopping around the corner on my a

special interests and big corporations tax breaks that middle-class americans do not get. it is pretty simple. i do not think oil companies should continue to get big tax breaks when they make tens of billions in profits. i do not think hedge fund managers should pay taxes at a lower rate than their secretaries. i do not think it is fair to ask nothing of someone like me when the average family sees their income decline over the last decade. when many of you are just trying to stretch every $1 as far as it will go. we should not put the burden of deficit reduction on the backs of people who have already borne the brunt of this recession. it is not reasonable and it is not right. if we are going to have seniors, students, middle-class americans to separate, then we have to ask corporations and wealthy americans to share. we have to ask everyone to play their part because we are all a part of the same country. we are all in this together. i have put things on the table important to me and democrats, and i expect republican leaders to do the same. after all, we have worked together like t

compared to what is happening today -- there is a big difference. there are lots of wonderful organizations that have popped up. we learned some hard lessons from vietnam about how not to treat our service members. we can never do enough. we can always try to do a little bit more. >> this is a variation of the same question. what is the most troubling deficiency you have seen in the treatment and assistance given returning soldiers? is there one particular thing that stands out? >> returning soldiers who are injured -- >> whether they are finished with their service or whether they come home rather rapidly. >> there are all kinds of stories. i know good stories and i know some not so good stories. let's say you are a returning veteran. your service is going to be over when you get back. you have been in the mountains of afghanistan. you saw 10 or 15 of your brothers killed before your eyes and many more wounded. you come back. there is a domestic problem at home. you get out of the service and you are despondent. you disappear. we have a lot of homeless veterans who are just trying to get a
